8 X 10 great sprinters died within weeks of each other in the fall of 2017. You would have be close to my age and a real track nut to know who they were. These two sprinters had a huge influence on my interest in speed and how to get people to run faster. Their best years came within a four-year span from 1961 to 1965. Both were small in stature, if you saw them in street clothes you would never guess they were world class athletes. Their small stature disguised incredible power and explosiveness. Neither ever lifted weights. One was white and one was African American. They were both linked to the great Bob Hayes. Hayes was the physical opposite of both of them.
Who were these guys? Johnny Gilbert who graduated from Santa Barbara High school in 1960 and ran a close second to Bob Hayes world record 100 yards for 9.1 seconds years in St Louis in 1962 (First record ever set on an artificial track – rubberized asphalt). Johnny ran a 9.2 and later claimed the dubious distinction of being the first American to lose to a Russian sprinter when he finished third in the 1963 USA/USSR dual meet in Moscow.
The other sprinter was Darel Newman, AKA the bald Bullet, he was prematurely bald after a bout of valley fever as a child. He beat Bob Hayes in an indoor race. He won NCAA indoor 60-yard dash in 1964. His best 100 was a hand timed 9.2. He finished second in 1965 NCAA meet and was ranked number three in the world in 1965.
So, what is my connection? The summer after my freshman year in high school Gilbert was the recreation supervisor at Harding Elementary school across the street from my house. He used to let us challenge him to races of various lengths and give us a handicap and would always beat us no matter how short the distance. I remember him spotting bunch of us ten yards in a 60 and him beating us by almost ten yards! I just keep trying to figure how someone could be so fast, it started me trying to find the answer. Here is his obituary.
Darel Newman was senior at Fresno State when I was freshman. He lived in the same dorm. After freshman football ended I made it a point to watch him train any time I could. Nothing spectacular. He seldom ran over 120 yards in training. He was a pure “drop dead” 100-yard sprinter and his training reflected it. I quickly realized that sprinters needed to be trained differently. Here is his obituary.
It was sad to learn of their passing. They were good guys who represented their sport well and taught me more in than short time than I would have learned in years. Best of all their fueled my passion for learning about speed that continues today. RIP and God speed to you guys, hopefully you and Bob Hayes are having good races in heaven.
Tags: Obituary, SpeedVern Gambetta has worked as a coach of professional athletes and teams in more than a dozen sports. He is the founder of the Gambetta Athletic Improvement Network (GAIN) and host of the GAINcast.Darel Max Newman, who in the 1960s was among the fastest men in the world and earned the nickname the “Bald Bullet” as a record-setting sprinter at Fresno State, died Tuesday. He was 74.
Born in Reedley on Aug. 6, 1943, Newman attended Selma High and developed into a world-class athlete. At Fresno State in 1964, he matched the hand-timed 100-yard world record of 9.2 seconds and won the NCAA indoor 60-yard dash, according to his induction citation as a member of the Fresno Athletic Hall of Fame.
Newman also advanced that year to the finals at the U.S. Olympic Trials.

He was selected Athlete of the Meet.
“All of a sudden I was super famous in Russia,” Newman was quoted in a 1997 article in the Los Angeles Times. “I was even assigned two KGB agents as bodyguards.”
Newman was inducted into the Fresno Athletic Hall in 1988 as part of a class that included Sanger native and Super Bowl-winning coach Tom Flores.
The Hall came calling again in 2013, when it inducted the Bulldogs’ 1964 track and field team – the first in school history to win a national championship.Newman won the 100-yard dash at the College Division Championships at Ratcliffe Stadium. That team, coached by Dutch Warmerdam, also got victories in the long jump and 120-yard high hurdles from Sid Nickolas, the triple jump by Charles Craig and by its 440-yard relay team.
After retiring as an athlete, Newman was a teacher and coach first at Carr Junior High in Santa Ana and then at Santa Ana High. He also served as meet director for the Santa Ana Relays, the oldest high school meet in the state.
Newman is survived by his wife of 51 years, Linda; daughter Shelly Repp and her husband, Steve; son Ryan and his wife, Tammy; grandchildren Steffani, Shaun and Summer; and great-granddaughter Beratta.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 2 p.m. on Oct. 17 at Greenlawn Memorial Park Southwest, 2739 Panama Lane in Bakersfield. A reception will follow.The 100 metres, or 100-metre dash, is a sprint race in track and field competitions. The shortest common outdoor running distance, it is one of the most popular and prestigious events in the sport of athletics. It has been contested at the Summer Olympics since 1896 for men and since 1928 for women. The World Championships 100 metres has been contested since 1983.
File:Women's 100M Final - 28th Summer Universiade 2015 Gwangju.webmWomen's 100M Final – 28th Summer Universiade 2015The reigning 100 m Olympic or world champion is often named "the fastest man or woman in the world". Christian Coleman and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce are the reigning world champions; Usain Bolt and Elaine Thompson are the men's and women's Olympic champions.
On an outdoor 400 metres running track, the 100 m is run on the home straight, with the start usually being set on an extension to make it a straight-line race. There are three instructions given to the runners immediately before and at the beginning of the race: ready, set, and the firing of the starter's pistol. The runners move to the starting blocks when they hear the 'ready' instruction. The following instruction, to adopt the 'set' position, allows them to adopt a more efficient starting posture and isometrically preload their muscles: this will help them to start faster. A race-official then fires the starter's pistol to signal the race beginning and the sprinters stride forwards from the blocks. Sprinters typically reach top speed after somewhere between 50 and 60 m. Their speed then slows towards the finish line.
The 10-second barrier has historically been a barometer of fast men's performances, while the best female sprinters take eleven seconds or less to complete the race. The current men's world record is 9.58 seconds, set by Jamaica's Usain Bolt in 2009, while the women's world record of 10.49 seconds set by American Florence Griffith-Joyner in 1988 remains unbroken.[a]
The 100 m (109.361 yards) emerged from the metrication of the 100 yards (91.44 m), a now defunct distance originally contested in English-speaking countries. The event is largely held outdoors as few indoor facilities have a 100 m straight.
US athletes have won the men's Olympic 100 metres title more times than any other country, 16 out of the 28 times that it has been run. US women have also dominated the event winning 9 out of 21 times.Contents1 Race dynamics1.1 Start1.2 Mid-race1.3 Finish1.4 Climatic conditions2 10-second barrier2.1 Ethnicity3 Record performances3.1 Continental records4 All-time top 25 men4.1 More facts about these male runners4.2 Assisted marks5 All-time top 25 women5.1 More facts about these female runners5.2 Assisted marks6 Season's bests6.1 Men6.2 Women7 Top 17 junior (under-20) men7.1 Notes8 Top 20 junior (under-20) women8.1 Notes9 Top 15 Youth (under-18) boys10 Top 15 Youth (under-18) girls10.1 Notes11 Para world records men12 Para world records women13 Olympic medallists13.1 Men13.2 Women14 World Championship medallists14.1 Men14.2 Women15 See also16 Notes17 References18 External linksRace dynamicsStart
Male sprinters await the starter's instructionsAt the start, some athletes play psychological games such as trying to be last to the starting blocks.[3][4][5]
At high level meets, the time between the gun and first kick against the starting block is measured electronically, via sensors built in the gun and the blocks. A reaction time less than 0.1 s is considered a false start. The 0.2-second interval accounts for the sum of the time it takes for the sound of the starter's pistol to reach the runners' ears, and the time they take to react to it.
For many years a sprinter was disqualified if responsible for two false starts individually. However, this rule allowed some major races to be restarted so many times that the sprinters started to lose focus. The next iteration of the rule, introduced in February 2003, meant that one false start was allowed among the field, but anyone responsible for a subsequent false start was disqualified.
This rule led to some sprinters deliberately false-starting to gain a psychological advantage: an individual with a slower reaction time might false-start, forcing the faster starters to wait and be sure of hearing the gun for the subsequent start, thereby losing some of their advantage. To avoid such abuse and to improve spectator enjoyment, the IAAF implemented a further change in the 2010 season – a false starting athlete now receives immediate disqualification.[6] This proposal was met with objections when first raised in 2005, on the grounds that it would not leave any room for innocent mistakes. Justin Gatlin commented, "Just a flinch or a leg cramp could cost you a year's worth of work."[7] The rule had a dramatic impact at the 2011 World Championships, when current world record holder Usain Bolt was disqualified.[8][9]
Mid-raceRunners normally reach their top speed just past the halfway point of the race and they progressively decelerate in the later stages of the race. Maintaining that top speed for as long as possible is a primary focus of training for the 100 m.[10] Pacing and running tactics do not play a significant role in the 100 m, as success in the event depends more on pure athletic qualities and technique.
FinishThe winner, by IAAF Competition Rules, is determined by the first athlete with his or her torso (not including limbs, head, or neck) over the nearer edge of the finish line.[11] There is therefore no requirement for the entire body to cross the finish line. When the placing of the athletes is not obvious, a photo finish is used to distinguish which runner was first to cross the line.
Climatic conditionsSee also: wind assistanceClimatic conditions, in particular air resistance, can affect performances in the 100 m. A strong head wind is very detrimental to performance, while a tail wind can improve performances significantly. For this reason, a maximum tail wind of 2.0 m/s is allowed for a 100 m performance to be considered eligible for records, or "wind legal".
Furthermore, sprint athletes perform a better run at high altitudes because of the thinner air, which provides less air resistance. In theory, the thinner air would also make breathing slightly more difficult (due to the partial pressure of oxygen being lower), but this difference is negligible for sprint distances where all the oxygen needed for the short dash is already in the muscles and bloodstream when the race starts. While there are no limitations on altitude, performances made at altitudes greater than 1000 m above sea level are marked with an "A".[12]
10-second barrierMain article: 10-second barrierThe 10 second mark had been widely been considered a barrier for the 100 meters. The first man to break the 10 second barrier was Jim Hines at the 1968 Summer Olympics. Since then, numerous sprinters have run faster than 10 seconds.
EthnicityMain article: Race and sportsOnly male sprinters have beaten the 100 m 10-second barrier, majority of them being of West African descent. Namibian (formerly South-West Africa) Frankie Fredericks became the first man of non-West African heritage to achieve the feat in 1991 and in 2003 Australia's Patrick Johnson (an Indigenous Australian with Irish heritage) became the first sub-10-second runner without an African background.[13][14][15][16]
In 2010, French sprinter Christophe Lemaitre became the first Caucasian to break the 10-second barrier,[16] In 2017, Azerbaijani-born naturalized Turkish Ramil Guliyev followed[17] and in 2018, Filippo Tortu became the first Italian to run under 10s. In the Prefontaine Classic 2015 Diamond League meet at Eugene, Su Bingtian of China ran a time of 9.99 seconds, becoming the first East Asian athlete to officially break the 10-second barrier. On 22 June 2018, Su improved his time in Madrid with a time of 9.91.[18] On 9 September 2017, Yoshihide Kiryū became the first man from Japan to break the 10-second barrier in the 100 metres, running a 9.98 (+1.8) at an intercollegiate meet in Fukui.
Colin Jackson, an athlete with mixed ethnic background and former world record holder in the 110 metre hurdles,[19] noted that both his parents were talented athletes and suggested that biological inheritance was the greatest influence, rather than any perceived racial factor. Furthermore, successful black role models in track events may reinforce the racial disparity.[20]
Record performancesMajor 100 m races, such as at the Olympic Games, attract much attention, particularly when the world record is thought to be within reach.
The men's world record has been improved upon twelve times since electronic timing became mandatory in 1977.[21] The current men's world record of 9.58 s is held by Usain Bolt of Jamaica, set at the 2009 World Athletics Championships final in Berlin, Germany on 16 August 2009, breaking his own previous world record by 0.11 s.[22] The current women's world record of 10.49 s was set by Florence Griffith-Joyner of the US, at the 1988 United States Olympic Trials in Indianapolis, Indiana, on 16 July 1988[23] breaking Evelyn Ashford's four-year-old world record by .27 seconds. The extraordinary nature of this result and those of several other sprinters in this race raised the possibility of a technical malfunction with the wind gauge which read at 0.0 m/s- a reading which was at complete odds to the windy conditions on the day with high wind speeds being recorded in all other sprints before and after this race as well as the parallel long jump runway at the time of the Griffith-Joyner performance. All scientific studies commissioned by the IAAF and independent organisations since have confirmed there was certainly an illegal tailwind of between 5 m/s – 7 m/s at the time. This should have annulled the legality of this result, although the IAAF has chosen not to take this course of action. The legitimate next best wind legal performance would therefore be Griffith-Joyner's 10.61s performance in the final the next day.[24]
Some records have been marred by prohibited drug use – in particular, the scandal at the 1988 Summer Olympics when the winner, Canadian Ben Johnson was stripped of his medal and world record.
Jim Hines, Ronnie Ray Smith and Charles Greene were the first to break the 10-second barrier in the 100 m, all on 20 June 1968, the Night of Speed. Hines also recorded the first legal electronically timed sub-10 second 100 m in winning the 100 metres at the 1968 Olympics. Bob Hayes ran a wind-assisted 9.91 seconds at the 1964 Olympics.

He tested positive for tetrahydrogestrinone in October 2003, and was given a two-year suspension in February 2004. Originally he claimed innocence, but after his suspension ended in November 2005 he admitted to doping during the 2002 and 2003 seasons. His record was subsequently rescinded in June 2006.[50]Steve Mullings is serving a lifetime ban for doping.[51]Assisted marksAny performance with a following wind of more than 2.0 metres per second is not counted for record purposes.
